I had trouble deciding between 3 or 4 stars for this and gave 4 because of the performers. The show was great. Well-staged with beautiful dancers and "warriors", lots of fire and drums, and just enough cheesy emcee to make you smile.
Then you get the food. The best you can say about it is that it's good resort food. Seriously, it's actually good, just not excellent, but the cocktails are terrible. Blech. The service -- now THAT was fantastic. Our waiter never made us ask for more, and even noticed that my daughter wasn't eating anything and quickly swooped in with a big plate of french fries.
We sat in premium seating, in the second row (of three) of tables, and I definitely think that rows two and three are better than the front row since it is right under the stage. If you pay the small upcharge for premium, you have a separate check-in line and your table is reserved. Everyone else stood in a long (but reasonable) line and had to get tables first-come-first served, I think. Everyone gets a shell-lei greeting, and the bar is open ahead of time with a handful of drink selections ("open" during the show for whatever you want), so come early to drink and shop the craft vendors, and to find a good table if you're not in premium. You also get photos taken by the beautiful waterfall. It's man-made, but very nicely done.
